War, a powerful school... 16 Aug. 2009
By Maya Nader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Alexandre Najjar writes candidly the emotions and feelings of his childhood during the Lebanese war. His writing is colored with lebanese dialectical expressions; folkloric characters, places and flavors; and personal experiences in a very parochial type of war. Yet his story is as universal as it gets. Anyone having experienced any type of war -even any type of a major life-crisis, will relate to "The School of War." The tone is always light and optimistic, even cheerful. Yet the message is always present: War kills innocence.
